I bought these shoes based on past reviews which mentioned comfort with regards to plantar fasciitis. The reviews were spot on! For the fist time in a year and several pairs of shoes later, my feet didn't hurt when I played. I have never been so happy! I am ordering another pair to rotate. I play 3-4 times a week, and I wear super feet orthotics.

Unfortunately Asics changed the fit from the previous version. My regular size was too big, so I went down half a size, and it did not fit either. Previous reviews warned me, I should have listened. Too bad, because I love the cushioning of Asics tennis shoes.

Best shoe I ever had. I have feet problems and with these shoes I can play pickleball for hours without my feet hurting. Bought a second pair and it didn't feel the same. Had to exchange it.

Too wide. I buy Asics running shoes in narrow and they are the best. Asics - please add narrow tennis shoes to your line!
